Dont buy rebranded chinese phones from indian companies

1) These phones do not have standard batteries. Every mobile model from India companies has a different kind of battery type. It hard to find aftermarket replacement batteries even from their service centers. Nokia for example uses identical batteries across different models (BL-5C is used in 65 mobile models).
2) If in case the device has some fault. Firstly, they will try to put blame on you by claiming that damage is due to moisture, or due to the reason the mobile fell on floor etc etc.
3) Even if they admit their warranty defect, you will have to follow up for weeks/months to get it back and after you get it back, it will again develop some snag.
4)I have used Spice Mi-410(Single Sim), its battery doesn't last one single day without charging twice. Half of its juice is eaten by pre-installed bloatware like CSL fun club, Blueberry Messerger from Spice. You can't uninstall them.
So its better to buy from good brand like Nokia or Samsung.

Best mobile if you aren't a multimedia buff

I got this mobile a couple of days back... At this point of time all I could say is that if you are looking for budget Android mobile which is good in mobility and web related features, you must grab it. in case of multimedia its good only for casual gaming and casual video viewing... you won't get a powerhouse in it.

- Super cheap price considering the specs
- Good audio
- No sluggishness, nice responsive screen
- has all features like secondary camera, capacitive screen etc

- Poor camera
- low screen resolution and low colors on screen makes it inappropriate for hd games

Nice and Spicy ;)

I got this phone a week ago from flipkart. No question about the services of coarse.
This is a nice phone in the little budget and has got all the features a phone should have. Camera is fine (Don't expect too much) and front camera is only good for video calling. The 650Mhz processor bundled with a 200Mhz GPU will allow nice multitasking on the device. Voice is louder than the other Android Phones (Below 10000) but you have to compromise on quality a bit. The touch screen is very responsive and the 5-way navigation key makes navigation even better. This is of coarse not a phone to play high-end games but it can run AngryBirds, Talking Tom, SpeeedCar, etc quite nicely. The motion sensor also works smoothly. The only con is that the battery backup of this phone is low which is obvious because it is an Android Phone and supports Dual-Sim.
I would recommend this phone ahead of Galaxy Y, Micromax A70, LG Optimus Me and Idea Blade. I would surely recommend to buy any phone from flipkart only.
